Actually, I'd love to have an original bleed valve. I know. I'm weird.

A working cigarette lighter, please.

The ashtray insert.

A set of shims for the camshaft pulley.

The switch at (actually in) the interior lamp. It's the triangular one, not the trapezoidal one. The lamp, that is.

A rim, preferably with a decent tyre, preferably in 155SR14. I do have a TX wheel with a hopelessly incorrect sized tyre for swappage, if wanted, but it isn't in the best of conditions.

The LH upper stainless windscreen trim.

The RH bonnet 'banana' trim.

A gas pedal rubber.

The rubber sealing ring for the coolant expansion bottle.

 

I must stress that unfortunately I'm not a wealthy man, thus would prefer used parts when sensible.

Please note that mine is a Phase 1b, i.e. from before the 1968 makeover.

How is Mike these days? Hope his health is better. I feel I want to send my best wishes but he doesn’t know me from Adam so that would be a bit weird.

I expect I need some bits but I don’t know what, so ignore that.

You haven't half dropped some killer content since that lad called you a cunt Junkman. Can we have someone have a go at you once every couple of month to keep the rate up?

Those pics are all worth a page on the calendar. I love the one with the beast and the moon. And the ship. And the car.

Feel free, for all I care.

However, this won't change the fact, that Christmas to Easter are relatively off season every year.

Should anyone give a shit, I decided to run this car with 10W40, since I felt the 20W50 generally being too thick for the modern engine it has.

My choice is this classic hot hatch oil, which contains 1,300 ppm ZDDP.

 

https://www.ebay.co....ES/222883743922

s-l1600.jpg

 

 

The car runs noticeable smoother and there isn't a tick from the valve train.

I can also feel the oil reaching all the lubrication points quicker on startup.

 

I thus recommend this oil to other Cleon engined Renault owners.

 

Please make sure you run oils with ZDDP in your pre cat cars.

This isn't snake oil, you really need it in those engines and oilz for modernz don't contain any of it.

Oil for hot hatches, disappointingly germanic labelling when clearly it ought to have a 16 on there.

I can only second what Junkman said regarding using a thinner oil if the engine is in good condition. So much old stuff has the default 20w50 poured in when a lighter grade would be beneficial.

Thanks Junkman, I shall buy some hot hatch oil forthwith.

My Cleon engined Renner has that valve train tick, and I was wondering how to cure it (rather than just ignore it, as I've been doing).

Hm. I need to get 30 weight non-detergent oil. I'm not sure if it has ZDDP in; I'm going to have to now make enquires at the local parts place about oil with it in or an additive in a bottle that can be mixed with the oil.

Thank you for informative tidbit.

I honestly thank you for this unoriginal contribution, which clearly makes you a cunt, sir, according to some, but it's true nevertheless.

 

I wish he wouldn't call an engine a mowdur, though.

 

Of course you could chuck cheap supermarket oil into your engines, because that's still better than what they used originally.

 

When my R16 was registered in that Paris, they probably poured straight 30 weight detergent in it, hooned it from Ave Kleber, taking a slight right at Ternes with body roll of much hilarity, pressed the throttle of the Solex into the rubber mat all the way along the Blvd de Courcelles/Batignolles, then hooked a right at Clichy with the Michelin XZXs screaming for mercy, and French parked the heap right in front of the Moulin Rouge.

 

But if you use that cheap supermarket oil in your pre cat chod today, with there being nothing wrong with that, make sure you add a ZDDP additive, for fucks sake.
